for the nurses who walk out. >>> a northern california man vs. a great white shark. >> came up from underneath me, and pulled me in the water. >> the move that freed him from the shark's jaws. >> new moves >>> some incredible new details tonight about a shark attack off the coast of eureka. for the first time, we're hearing from the young surfer who was attacked, and pulled under water, and what he did to get the shark to go. >> reporter: it was near this very spot where surfers could be seen riding the waves today where it happened. >> i was very fortunate to be here and able to tell my story. >> reporter: scott stevens story started yesterday morning along the eureka coast. >> it happened very quick. a shark picked up from underneath me, and pretty much grabbed onto my side. >> reporter: the shark made a mark on his surfboard, and left a 14-inch bite wound in his side. >> i opened my eyes underwater and punched the shark on the side of the head several times until it released me. >> reporter: he was losing blood fast. it is understandable, there are very few people surfing at this spot today.
